Samson Meteor Mic Has It’s Downsides

This post refers to

Christopher Breen of Macworld on the Samson Meteor Mic:

If I must take another swing at this mic I’ll also say that while I love having a Mute button—a feature I’d like to see on more USB microphones—whenever you press it, you can very definitely hear it.

I use this mic to record the Hippo Podamus. I picked it over the Blue Yeti because it got such good reviews. To be honest, I am not sure if I would buy it again over the Yeti. The legs get in the way and like Breen said you need a mic stand to get it to the right height, although I disagree with his statement that most desktop stands won’t work. The audibleness of the mute button is spot on and pretty much renders it completely useless.
